Based on popular demand, Royal Caribbean International, the cruise line known for its award-winning family programming, is extending its limited-time ÔÇ£Kids Sail FreeÔÇØ offer to its Baltimore-based ship, Grandeur of the Seas. From March 15 through March 31, 2014, vacationers in the Greater Maryland Area and beyond can enjoy complimentary cruise fare for third and fourth guests of all ages in any triple- or quad-occupancy staterooms onboard Grandeur of the Seas, as well as a 50 percent-reduced deposit. The offer is valid for all new individual U.S. and Canadian bookings and named group bookings made on sailings departing between May 2 and Dec. 9, 2014, while supplies last.
Grandeur of the Seas sails year-round from the Port of Baltimore and received a $48 million bow-to-stern revitalization in May 2013, which incorporated six new specialty dining options, technological upgrades and new entertainment programming, as well as a refresh of all furniture, carpet, upholstery and staterooms. Families with toddlers can take advantage of the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery, which caters to the cruise line’s youngest guests, ages six months to 36 months. Guests on Grandeur of the Seas can also enjoy a 220-square foot poolside movie screen and take in a high-flying experience whereby aerialists glide through the ship’s six-story atrium.
Throughout the year, vacationers can choose among a variety of itineraries to Bermuda, The Bahamas and the Eastern and Western Caribbean. In the summer, itineraries alternate between seven-night Bermuda sailings, featuring a two-night call at Kings Wharf, and seven-night sailings to The Bahamas, calling at Port Canaveral, Florida; Nassau, The Bahamas; and CocoCay — Royal Caribbean’s private Bahamian- island paradise. In the fall, Grandeur of the Seas will alternate between six-night Bermuda and eight-night Canada and New England sailings. The winter season will consist of rotating 10-night sailings to the Eastern and Western Caribbean, as well as eight-night sailings to The Bahamas. —
